A patient with recurrent episodes of dizziness and blackouts is described. Detailed cardiac and neurological investigations were normal. Autonomic assessment excluded postural hypotension and confirmed normal sympathetic vasoconstrictor function. Cardiac parasympathetic function in response to deep breathing, hyperventilation and ocular pressure was normal. Left carotid sinus massage only reproducibly lowered blood pressure with minimal change in heart rate. This occurred mainly during head-up… CONTINUE READING
